I came to the Hotel Colorado looking for a place to catch up on some work between backpacking stints, and it was exactly what I wanted. Clean, friendly, and most importantly, quiet. No thumping club music! Good, strong wifi that reached up to my room on the top floor, fast enough to stream Netflix or FaceTime.
Best of all was the super-friendly staff, who somehow manage to strike the rare balance of always being there when you need something but never making you feel watched. Everyone was super friendly, from the owner (who runs reception) to the cleaning women. Be warned that the cleaning women do not knock before entering--my only complaint. The rooms are cleaned every day, floor-washing and all. So, though the rooms are spartan (typical of Mexican budget accommodation), they are spotless. My room had a fan, a mini fridge, a TV, and a private bathroom.
There's not much of a social vibe, which was fine for me since I wanted to be productive. I agree with a previous reviewer that if there was a shared kitchen (not all rooms have kitchenettes), this would be a super-popular option for backpackers who want a quieter place to stay. It's in a good location--about 10 minutes or less to get to the beach, bus station, Walmart, etc.
I definitely recommend it!
